Mentoring Programs and Services at UW Oshkosh


The Association for Latino Men in Academia (ALMA) is an outreach program that focuses on retaining and graduating Latino men at UW Oshkosh.

The program seeks to inspire, promote and prepare students through leadership, cultural and educational activities. ALMA is designed to help Latino men on campus who would otherwise not have the insight, support or necessary social networks to succeed on their academic pathways.

ALMA also supports the notion that Latino students who have been successful and have prevailed should help mentor the new students in the program. For more information, call Irma Burgos at (920) 424-3081 or Victor Alatore at (920) 424-0480.


The Guiding Paths to Success (GPS) is a retention initiative designed to assist Southeast Asian/Asian students during their educational journeys at UW Oshkosh.

The goal of GPS is to empower students to seek the support needed to complement their educational experiences. To meet this goal, GPS will schedule monthly programs that will guide students from their historical journeys to the crossroads of the University.

The program will invite speakers/presenters to share their knowledge and/or experiences about various topics that will assist in the educational process by enhancing students' learning experiences, motivating them to succeed and by openly explaining the benefits of a college degree. For more information, call Mai Khou Xiong at (920) 424-0788.
